Maurice Sfoneman, Owner and Publisher Editorial Comments - Warning Signals Flashing Every time government forces wage increases on the imhlic by law, it automatically forces price incsea-es. no matter what argument is used to di?gui.-e this effect. As the process is repeated over and over, the inevitably day conies when government will set not only wages, but prices by law—then the free market, free labor, free industry and freedom of a tion in our daily lives is gone. And all this will be done step by step, ostensibly in behalf of the "common man" who, before ho knows it, winds up the pavn of a dictator government. Over the centuries this process has been re­ peated time and time again. In a short life-time milbns of people over the world have seen the "common man" who, in reality, is all men, engulfed by big government until his freedom was wiped out by bureaucracy, and the beneficent benefits promised left him a helpless ward of the state. Government is being injected more and more into the affairs of private citizens and industry in the United States. It is promoted in many ways, generally with strings attached, which restrict or remove individual opportunity. How far will we permit it to go in our own land? We are not immune from the penalties exacted by it. Bills For Children Chattin' With Stoney The school year had ended and the only thing left to do was for the students to return on Monday for their report cards lo see if they were pmmoted Rut a note of sadness was noticed in the fourth grade. One member did not return . . . and would never attend class again. Yes, Lucky, the only rabbit with a fourth grade education, died early Monday morning before he could be pnsmoted to the fifth grade. He had been a regular member of the class for the past two months, ever since our daughter found him in the yard. At first he went to school in a box, but later was promoted to a bird cage so he could see the blackboard. But, as is the case with most wild animals, captivity didn't agree with him, and so he is now in rabbit heaven. . . . Don't feel too bad, though, because we already have a replacement to occupy the bird cage . . . a parakeet. | Creek Bottom Comments By Reuben There are many facets to the keep him from tearing an umpire sorry and shameful happenings asunder?

It finds that, if passed, their cost would average billion a year for the next few years and reach §5.2 billion by fiscal 1966. The Federal budget, estimated by President Eisenhower at S80.9 billion for 19G2 and subsequently increased by President Kennedy to $84.3 billion, wi.niId certainly reach $90 billion by fiscal 1965 and possiby by 1964.

Open forum letters, or letters to the editor are printed in this paper as a service to anyone who wishes to express his opinion, provided the letter is signed. We do not always agree with the Dear Editor, During the past years most of us have learned to depend on the telephone system as a business aid, and also a method by which we could call the doctor, fire department or police department in a hurry in case of an emergency. However, when it takes as long as a 14 and one- half minute wait for the operator to say "number please", then the phone ceases to be very effective for business or emergency. I have taken the liberty of keeping track of the time spent by myself and my family over a two week period, in waiting for the operator here in Fayette. Believe me, the time wasted in this nerve-grating activity would just and groans of professional wrestling, it's part of the show that people pay to see. These "big time" ball players should take dramatic lessons from some of the top bracket women wrestlers, like the famous Mildred Rurke, who was "World Cnampion" for so many years. There was a gal that could "clabber up a storm", if the gate receipts were satisfactory. At her best, she was a lovely red-head, a great female athlete, and quite an actress. We had a front-row ring-side seat at one of her "performances" before a large Hippodrome crowd, when she put on a full show. During a brief lull after furious action, one fellow asked, "is she married?" When told that she was, ne mused out loud, "G , I wonder how her husband makes out." fob-c A Corvair salesman from Saint Cloud, Minn, alleges that h* drove heme in a bright red demonstrator.
